(PRWEB) January 14, 2013
Kuala Lumpur, 14 January 2013 - The iProperty Group, owner of Asia’s No.1 network of property portals in Malaysia: iproperty.com.my, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Macau and Singapore, today announced that it has formed an exclusive partnership with Rotterdam based company, Floorplanner.com. The partnership is set to offer property buyers a revolutionizing platform to find the property of their choice.
Set to be featured across the iProperty Group’s network of property portals, Floorplanner.com, a leading online floor planning application tool, will allow property buyers the opportunity to generate floor plans of their listing in either 2D or 3D.
According to iProperty Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Shaun Di Gregorio, the partnership was also in line with iProperty Group’s strong focus in providing consumers a unique offering.
“As a company that strives on providing innovative solutions, the partnership with Floorplanner.com will allow us to take the products and services that we currently offer our consumers to a whole new level. The advancements of technological opportunities call for new ways of presenting and showcasing property,” said Di Gregorio.
He added that Floorplanner will be a great tool for property buyers as they often wonder if the property they like will cater to their needs and whether renovating it will produce the results they desire.
“It truly is a compelling interactive tool as floor plans can be viewed directly on each of the portals that we own and operate. Property buyers can draw and design their floor plans themselves. They can renovate and furnish the floor plan according to their own preference and taste. The tools provided are easy and fun to use and we believe that property buyers will have fun illustrating their vision on how their desired home should look like,” added Di Gregorio.
Elaborating on this, he added that the partnership was an important component to the iProperty Group’s strategy to capitalize on the rapid growth of the business, and to solidify their position as a leader in the exploding and rapidly growing property industry.
“We see tremendous value in this partnership. We know that purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments they will ever make and with Floorplanner, they are now not only able to find their dream home, but now personally design the interior of their home virtually,” added Di Gregorio.
Echoing the same sentiments, Jeroen Bekkers, Chief Executive Officer of Floorplanner.com, said, “We are very excited to form this partnership with Asia’s No.1 network of Property Portals. I believe that with our unique offering combined with the iProperty Group’s extensive brand presence, we will be able to take our business to the next level.”
He added that floor plans can be created with just a few clicks and filled with details using Floorplanner's library of objects. Everything can be resized, rotated and reshaped as desired. These floor plans can be published online or exported offline.
According to Di Gregorio, Floorplanner, which is made available for free, is targeted to be officially launched in February this year.
